Thank you to everyone who has given us feedback on the early opening of the priority booking. While we appreciate that no time will suit everyone, the majority of the Friends welcomed the early start. The most appealing factor was the speed and absence of problems.
Taking this feedback into account, as well as the results of a similar trial for general booking last month, we have decided to open priority booking for all levels of Friends at 9am from now on. Telephone booking remains unchanged and will open at 10am.
If you don't feel confident booking online, my team and I will be very willing to assist you. If you prefer to book by phone, we will have an allocation of tickets available based on the percentage of Friends who book in this way.
The Season Guide and Autumn Magazine are now on the way to you. I hope that you will find our 2015/16 programme exciting. While the magazine is listing autumn performances, there are still many wonderful performances to enjoy during 2014/15: Król Roger is in rehearsal and the revival of Il turco in Italia is making many of us laugh. Something else that brightens everyone's mood is at the top of the page - it's always lovely to see Peregrine, the equine star of La Fille mal gardée back at the Royal Opera House!
And last but not least, many thanks again for your support. Please do continue giving us your feedback, we like to hear from you.
